Dog the Bounty Hunter is hurting… Amazon Prime Day concert… Justin Bieber’s collaboration… Britney Spears lawsuit update… and Camila Cabello asks fans to be nice
We know him as Dog the Bounty Hunter, and he is hurting today. Duane Chapman announced that his wife Beth passed away yesterday after a tough battle with cancer. She was only 51. Beth was initially diagnosed with throat cancer in 2017 and documented the experience for an A&E special, “Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives.” After her treatment, Beth was declared cancer-free, but not for long. She was diagnosed with both throat and lung cancer a year later. Duane says Beth left him notes to find around their house after she died. He said, “Beth was somewhat of a control person — not from the grave but from heaven….I’ve got notes in my pillowcases, on my sink, in my shaving thing. She’s still telling me what to wear.”
To get everybody pumped up about Amazon Prime Day — which is being stretched out over 2 days — Amazon is holding a Prime Day Concert, exclusively for Amazon Prime members. They actually did this last year with Ariana Grande, Alessia Cara, Kelsea Ballerini and Julia Michaels. This year, Taylor Swift headlines the July 10 concert lineup, which also features Dua Lipa, SZA and Becky G. Prime Video will stream it all live starting at 9pm ET. And then the big Prime Day deals start at midnight Pacific time on Monday, July 15 and run through July 16. Of course, everybody is going to benefit from this. eBay hopes to steal some of Amazon’s thunder with a big sale of its own. And Target will do its own version of Prime Day over the same two day period.
Justin Bieber started his own clothing line, which he named after himself. Drew is Justin’s middle name. But Drew also happens to be the name of a really cool actress, so why not tie the two together? Justin and Drew have collaborated on some t-shirts that feature pictures of Drew throughout her career.

Britney Spears, her dad Jamie and her conservatorship have filed a defamation lawsuit against the man who started the Absolute Britney Instagram account that led to the #FreeBritney movement. The lawsuit claims Anthony Steven “made it his mission to spread numerous false and malicious lies on the Internet about Britney, her conservatorship, and her team, including that those around Britney are harming her and not acting in her best interests.” The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages.
Camila Cabello and Matthew Hussey aren’t together any more, but that doesn’t mean we have to be hateful to him to show support for her. Camila went on her Instagram Story to issue this plea: “To my fans, if you really love me, please do not send people I love and care about hateful things. You doing that really hurts me, and it’s so unnecessary and heavy and damaging to add more pain to pain. There’s a real person behind your tweets. You spamming them with hateful, insensitive things is really not funny, is causing all of us pain, and doesn’t all reflect the values I talk about. Please be kind and compassionate and sensitive and respectful. I know you love me, but anyone that’s doing that is really not even respecting the sacred things in my life. The people I love and care about is one of them. I would really appreciate it if you would delete any mean comments you’ve sent, and please be kind by leaving it alone.”
